First time drag racing! The clunking noises was the rear upper control arm bushings that were completely gone! Im building a 347 stroker with all forged internals to take on the Z06 next summer. Shifting has been getting alot better since then!
I have always been a CHEVY guy ... but i LOVE THE MUSTANG ...

dont let them get you down it takes alot to kill a z06 in a fox its about the fun he payed 60k you payed 4k and still could see his tail lights im sure a couple of thease guys thats posted have been whipped by a vette including me we just didnt video and post it on your control arms thats not good bro im in the lane next to you and that arm brakes you fly over and hit my car well.......you know i blame this on poor tech inspecting thease tech guys get your paper draw a number and say next they need to do their jobs could save a life we need safety so we are able to do this sport in the future
Well that wasn't that surprising. If you built a halfway decent 347 and got the fox's weight down to about ~3100lbs (which seems like a lot of people manage to do that) You'd be at about the same power & weight of the z06 so that'd make a very interesting race.
Keep in mind the z06 has a trans geared specifically for going from 0-60 and one of the corvette mags did a test and a stock 2004 z06 ran 11.9
